The following data set contains the temperature from WACCM-X simulation for the 2018/2019 SSW event for all levels, latitudes and longitudes. In total, there are 145 levels and the latitude x longitude grid size is 96 x 144. The data begins on 01.12.2018 and ends on 31.01.2019. The simulation has been performed by including the lunar tide at the lower boundary in WACCM-X according to the methods described in Pedatella et al., 2012 (refer to the manuscript for more details). This data set has been used to compare the WACCM-X temperature with AURA-MLS temperature observations and to calculate the SW2 and M2 tides in the MLT region.
